It’s the final quarter of the year and we are looking at an excellent month of music for October 2020. It’s a rich blend of debut releases and albums from more established artists and we know we’ll come out of this month with a new contender for album of the year.

LANY – Mama’s Boy

LANY – Mama’s Boy
(October 2)

Since their epic single collaboration with Lauv on 2019’s Mean It, we’ve been really looking forward to rock trio LANY’s third output Mama’s Boy, which is out this week on Polydor. It sees them at their most authentic and honest yet, with more of an acoustic tone and a confidence that is unsurprising given the skillful development of their sound.

(October 16)

Setting out on a solo venture is always daunting for an artist who’s used to being in a band, but The National frontman Matt Berninger should have nothing to worry about if his recent singles One More Second, Distant Axis and the titular Serpentine Prison are anything to go by. His voice is more stripped back than we’ve ever heard it, and we are loving what we’re hearing.

Shortlisted this year for the Brits’ Rising Star Award (and longlisted for the BBC’s Sound of 2020), Beabadoobee has been making waves ahead of the release of her debut album Fake It Flowers. She first came on our radar after featuring on Powfu’s Death Bed (Coffee for Your Head), followed by her stunning lead single Care earlier this year.

Gorillaz – Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez
(October 23)

The first “season” of Gorillaz’s new audiovisual Song Machine project is set to drop this month. If it sounds complicated, it probably is; though since when has Damon Albarn done anything simple? Strange Timez sees the return of Murdoc Niccals who we missed in 2018’s The Now Now, and also sees a number of different collaborators spanning all genres; from The Cure’s Robert Smith and New Order’s Peter Hook, to Elton John, St Vincent and Schoolboy Q.

Nothing But Thieves – Moral Panic
(October 23)

After 2017’s epic output Broken Machine (which reached number 2 in the UK charts), we are really looking forward to what Nothing But Thieves have got for us this year with Moral Panic. Songs like Is Everybody Going Crazy? and Real Love Song have been on repeat for us lately, and it definitely feels like they’ve been pushing themselves even further this time round.

John Boyega | John Boyega compares They Cloned Tyrone to Attack the Block

john boyega 2164000

John Boyega has likened ‘They Cloned Tyrone’ to ‘Attack the Block’.

The 28-year-old actor is starring in Juel Taylor’s Netflix sci-fi movie with Jamie Foxx and Teyonah Parris and has compared the movie to Joe Cornish‘s 2011 alien flick, in which he made his feature film debut.

John told “The film is going to be like ‘Attack the Block’ for stateside, I’ll give you that.

“Juel’s making his directorial debut with the movie and he wrote a brilliant script. I mean, you don’t just attract Jamie Foxx with nothing, this is a really well-written one that I think is going to be a lot of fun.”

Boyega went on to land a role in the ‘Star Wars’ sequel trilogy after featuring in ‘Attack the Block’ and Cornish revealed last year that the pair had discussed a potential sequel with the star.

The 51-year-old director said: “We’ve got ideas.

“I met with John a couple of months ago to talk about it. We’ve always had ideas after the first one. But obviously we’ve both been busy doing different things.”

‘Attack the Block’ was celebrated earlier this year after John’s passionate anti-racism speech at a protest in London and Joe feels that it “wonderful” that people are re-watching it.

Discussing the project having a leading black actor and being set in a London tower block, he said: “The movie’s nearly 10 years old now, and it’s trying to address issues that were fairly ingrained then, and have certainly stuck around.

“At the time when it came out, it put a lot of people’s backs up, because it has a very unusual protagonist and arc.

“It’s wonderful that people are revisiting the film.”

Bob Gale | Bob Gale rejects Back to the Future 4

bob gale 2164026

Bob Gale has ruled out a fourth ‘Back to the Future’ film.

The 69-year-old screenwriter co-wrote the 1985 sci-fi comedy flick and two sequels with Robert Zemeckis but suggests star Michael J. Fox’s battle with Parkinson’s Disease means they would be unable to make another movie that is faithful to the originals.

Bob explained: “We told a complete story with the trilogy.

“If we went back and made another one, we’d have Michael J. Fox, who will be 60 next year, and he has Parkinson’s Disease. Do we want to see Marty McFly at age 60 with Parkinson’s Disease? Did we want to see him at age 50 with Parkinson’s Disease? I would say ‘No, you don’t want to see that.’ “

Gale – who produced all three ‘Back to the Future’ flicks – feels that it would be impossible to replace Michael as Marty McFly so would never want to tell a story that didn’t include the star.

He said: “People say, ‘Well, do it with somebody else.’ Really? Who are you going to get? All you’re gonna do is beg comparisons to the originals, and you’re not going to match up.”

Bob added that he doesn’t want to repeat the decisions of other film series such as ‘Star Wars’ by revisiting ‘Back to the Future’.

He told Collider: “We’ve seen this repeatedly with sequels that go back to the well after many, many years, and they go, ‘Ah, well, ‘The Phantom Menace’, maybe my life would have been better if I hadn’t seen it.’ There are a lot of extra sequels like that.”

Gale also explained that he and Robert have an agreement with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment which requires their blessing before another ‘Back to the Future’ film can be made.

He remarked: “We have an understanding with Spielberg and Amblin that there would never be another ‘Back to the Future’ movie without our blessing being involved. So it’s not going to happen.”

Naomi Campbell | Naomi Campbell writing autobiography

naomi campbell 2163895

Naomi Campbell is writing her autobiography.

The 50-year-old supermodel had been contemplating writing a memoir for some time but wasn’t unsure how to start, until she received some guidance from music producer Clarence Avant.

She told America’s Vogue magazine: “I had this old-school way of looking at it as having to put pen to paper.

“But I had a lovely lunch last year with Clarence Avant. I asked him, ‘Clarence, How do you do it? How do you start writing?’ And he told me, ‘Just start from anywhere. Don’t start from the beginning.’ So it is going to happen!”

Naomi is also keen to act more, depending on who approaches her for jobs and what the role entails she will always say yes to her friend and ‘Empire’ showrunner Lee Daniels.

She said: “I mean, if it feels like something that is right, and if I fit it as a 50-year-old woman, then sign me up!”

The fashion icon is very excited about the upcoming Apple TV+ docuseries ‘The Supermodels’ – which will explore the impact she, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, and Cindy Crawford had on culture in the 1990s – and revealed they had turned down a number of offers over the years until the right approach came along.

She said: “It was really worth holding out. If we are going to do something, we are going to be involved in it throughout the whole process, from beginning to end. Linda, Christy, and Cindy, these are my sisters. The four of us tell it. I wasn’t going to do it any other way.”
